The month of March is Women’s History Month and I’m excited to share with you my conversation with Kathrine Switzer.

Kathrine was the first woman to officially register and run the Boston Marathon in 1967. 

She was attacked in the race by an angry official who tried to rip off her bib number (#261) and throw her out of the race because she was a woman. 

She finished the race anyway and went on to win the 1974 NYC Marathon and dedic...

One of the hardest part about pursuing our dreams is dealing with rejections, and persuading other people to give us a chance.

The most difficult aspect of writing my book was that I had to convince successful and therefore very busy people to meet with me and give me a chance to interview them.

I got more rejected trying to write my book than I had ever been until that point in my life. But I was persistent. I tried and tried unti...

If you have been listening to my show for awhile, you know there’s a question I ask all the people I interview, and that is “Who helped you to achieve your dream?" 

I ask this question because we all know no one can succeed alone and achieve dreams alone. 

Everybody, including all the incredibly successful people I’ve met, all had people who helped them to get to where they are now.

Today I share with you the answers to this questi...

Do you clean your room or check social media when you have important work to do?

Do you procrastinate even though you know it’s a bad idea, and later feel guilty about it and get mad at yourself? 

If you ever felt this way, you are not alone!

I procrastinate a lot too, and so many of us struggle with this bad habit. 

Why do we sometimes become our own worst enemy?

In this episode, I talk about why we procrastinate and what we can d...

Do you constantly feel overwhelmed and feel like you are always behind because your to-do list keeps growing and growing?

We all want to feel better. 

We want to be happy, and want to feel positive emotions. 

But unfortunately our brains have a negativity bias which means we are way more sensitive and give a lot more weight to negative facts and information than positive ones. 

So if you are feeling more negative emotions than positive ones, you are not weird or any different from other people. It’s because you are human, and there are ways to cope....

Last year has been an unusual year, so our priorities and values may have changed.

I hope that you have given yourself some time to reflect and reassess what’s really important to you, so you can be sure that the goals you have for yourself and how you spend your time really reflects your values and priorities.

The pandemic has brought to our attention how fragile our lives are and how everything can change and end in an instant.

It’s the beginning of a new year and many of us have new goals and resolutions for the new year.

You might be thinking of exploring a new career path, a business opportunity, a side project or doing something creative like writing a book, painting or learning to play an instrument. 

Whatever the goal may be, I want this year to be the year that you make your goals and dreams happen!

I share with you a story about how I got into MIT when the odds were very much against me.

I went to a public high school in a bad school district (so bad that a lot of parents in the neighborhood changed their addresses to send their children to another high school nearby). I had been learning English for less than 5 years when I was applying to college, and my parents didn’t speak English well and didn’t know anything about the e...

She is widely known for many of her bestselling novels including “Please Look After Mom,” which sold more than 2 million copies in Korea and has been translated into man...

Today’s episode is Part 2 of my conversation with Michael Kim which started last week in episode 31.

We are continuing to talk about what kinds of situations lead to feelings of unhappiness and different ways of approaching them.

Michael Kim’s first interview, “How to Make Yourself Happy,” has been one of the most popular episodes on my podcast. Many of you wrote to me asking for a second interview with Michael.

Therefore, I had another conversation with Michael, and this time, we talked about “How to be unhappy” as a companion to our first conversation.
